    I'm keeping one of my kids that happens to be just a beautiful little doe. All my pens are side by side each other. How do you wean a kid from its mom when your keeping it? Will mom wean her? I'm not breeding her back until november. Mom is already tired of her three kids, lol! I would be too getting punched constantly in the boobs.

    are you planning on milking mom? I would just put the one in one pen and the other in the other pen and after about a month. They will still see each other which probably will be nice on your ears but will make it take longer to break the bond - though the mother daughter bond never truly goes away which is nice
